Balki spoke to The Indian Express, talking about how the were "behaving like kids":

"The client had signed Amitabh and Shah Rukh for different parts of the portfolio, and they have many products. They wanted an idea, and I said the best is to get both of them together!"

He also added, “I spoke to Amit ji and Shah Rukh and we discussed the scripts over the phone. On set, they were behaving like kids! Pulling each other’s legs, and having a ball. One full day we had a blast! We shot five ads for 12 hours, from 2 in the noon till night!”

Balki’s latest cricket drama Ghoomer hit screens last month. The film features Abhishek Bachchan.
